[ELECTRO-JAZZ] Local electro-jazz freaks Waffle Taco are influenced by Portishead, Miles Davis and Venetian Snares. Though the comparison is plastered all over the band’s Web presence, it is apt. Ben Beauvais lays down deep, belching basslines and chimes chords on his Rhodes piano while Kyle Linneman fulfills the Miles requirement, soloing in trumpet bursts over his own electronic polyrhythms. The jazz old guard will see no more Kind of Blue here than in a parking cone. When Waffle Taco references Miles, it means the rockier style of Bitches Brew. Occasionally the beats do trip to a certain hop, though usually they are content to explore textures with nothing more than Beauvais’ bass keeping time. Technically, the duo’s sound flagellates far more than its influences, but it’s this roughness that keeps it appealing. Waffle Taco has no albums. Waffle Taco has limitations. Waffle Taco is aurally, weirdly delicious.
